Hi
  As a crafter I enjoy making special gifts for all my friends for their Christmas presents,they don't have to cost the earth and I think people love them more because you have taken the time to create them,I have thoroughly enjoyed making them and have made them to match the recipients décor... ,
Here are a few of the candles I have made as gifts ..One of them them as made using the heat gun /melt the image on technique and some are just decorated with paper cuffs.
The image on the blue candle was coloured with promarkers and she is a stamp called snowflake from funkykits.
The gold/white candle was made using an SU stamp and wow powders.
The blue flower was made usingspellbinders donna salazaar flower dies and TH papers
The peach flower was made the same as the blue one only this time I used first edition papers.
The poinsettia candle was made using kraft card and a maraianne d die.
The vintage one was made using a premade topper I have had in my stash for 2 yrs !!!

3D drawer project

Hi all
I bought this template in oct at Cardiff craft fair and have only just had time to play with it...I am happy with my first attempt but guess it will become a bit neater every time you make one..I had to tweak the drawers a bit as they were a little too large .The template is from The house of Zandra .The papers are from Trimcraft first edition and are one of my favourite paper pads .I used peralised cream card 300gsm to construct it so its plenty sturdy enough to house my little jewellery items in the drawers.the flowers are from wild orchid and the butterfly is cheery lyn die. the foliage die is by joycrafts .I have made it in my fave colours to match my bedroom..so its my gift to myself ..lol x
